Iron & Wine Puts a Folk Spin on Gwar’s ‘Sick Of You’
Beam's warm, supple voice gives the goofy song's lyrics a whole new layer of levity as he confidently sings lines like: "Your nose it runs, you bust your buns" and "your face is gross, you eat white toast".
The A.V. Club also threw a couple wrinkles into Beam's visit: There are four different endings for the cover that include some special visitors who may or may not wear silly costumes and have a penchant for fake blood.
No stranger to cover songs, Beam recently released the second volume of his Iron & Wine Archive Series in which he covers Neil Young's "Albuquerque" and the Four Tops' "It's The Same Old Song." Both tracks were record during the time period of his debut album, 2002's The Creek Drank the Cradle. The 7" can be found at the Iron & Wine store.
